When Will Abbott Elementary Season 3 Release?
The start of Abbott Elementary's Season 3 production and writing, initially planned for May 1, 2023, was delayed as a result of the 2023 Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike.

Stars Quinta Brunson, Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, and Sheryl Lee Ralph are all expected to return for a third season.
Initially expected to premiere in September of this year, fans can now expect Abbott to return sometime in 2024.
